So i told my advisor i had to drop the class bc the prof said "supposably" and "irregardless" within the 1st 10 minutes of the 1st class; she agreed with me that dropping it was the best choice

5:36...the word is "leech"
Well if Google says so, it must be true.
9:25... What verb or noun makes the sound 'punch' or 'slam'?
I feel your pain, some of my profs say "pacific" in place of "specific"...
7:10, great 30 Rock allusion!
supposably sounds like a 5 year old trying to sound smart.
Its supposedly not supposably
...isnt that the point?
5:07 hi it's 5:03!
Supposably you could punch me in the face, but irregardless I would kick your ass.
Fuckin dumbass 5:03. "Google says so"? Seriously? The english language will prove 'irregardless' to be redundant. Google says so....I wish I could punch you in the face right now.
My creative writing professor tried to convince me that slam and punch were onomatopoeias, not verbs... awesome.
Do you know the muffin man
The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear
7:13- Funny you're calling him a dumbass when you can't even correctly use "you're" or "too" in a sentence.
Merriam Webster identifies irregardless as a word, but a highly frowned upon word which does suggest ignorance. It is probably a blend of irrespective and regardless.
And 5:07- the correct word is supposedly, there is no b or a in that word.
In Soviet Russia, classes drop YOU!
7:13......COLLAGE?!?!?! It's COLLEGE. Obviously you're not good enough for it
I wish my advisors were smart enough to understand why that's a bad sign.
Supposably is actually a word though misused 99%of the time. Too bad your instructor absolutely used it incorrectly and good for you for recognizing it
You fucking losers. Let me ask you something, do you walk around in public correcting gramer and spelling? If so, someday, you WILL get punched in the face.
Yeay for public education! *headdesk*
7:32 irregardless isn't a word fucktard
If we are discussing these "things" so thouroughly I think they may now be words. There are some hard core keeners on this site. I think they may be the people you try to avoid sitting next to at parties.
- "Supposably" IS a word, but I doubt your teacher was using it correctly.
- "Irregardless" is an Americanized form of "regardless." It's the same case as "toward" and "towards." Americans are really the only people to use "towards." So even though both are correct, "irregardless" is simply redundant.
"7:20 i can to use those words in a sentance but thats stupid you asshole. thats what the man wants you to do."
You're the stupid asshole. You keep spelling words wrong left and right! It's spelled SENTENCE. NOT SENTANCE.
8:45: it's LOSERS not LOOSERS.
Education these days are horrible.
I love that people can still appreciate the English language enough to care how it is spoken and written. These posts made my morning. Thank you!
supposably its college but i no better than that obviously its collage stupid
I had a teacher that said "elaminated" in stead of "laminated." I feel your pain.
SUPPOSEDLY, not "supposably". To all those who think otherwise... Yay for education today :-/
Irregardless is totally a word
It is SUPPOSEDLY. Omg that drives me crazy. I would have dropped the class too.
Oh yaaay! An intelligent TFLN. That is so funny. Props to you for dropping that class. There is no way i could sit in a class all semester listening to someone with a master's degree and no English skills.
And to those of you who think "supposably" is a word, just so you know, "alot" isn't a word, and neither is "flustrated."
it bothers me when people say "probly" instead of "probably" too
3:04 I agree, but I believe that "prolly" is the worst mutation of probably.
11:08- I don't know what dictionary you are using but physicality is most certainly a word.
haha well do what makes you happy then, I guess? :)
i hate when people say supposably. it's a d, you dumb fuckwads. supposeDly
Orange juice is better
12:42 not everyone goes on a semester some people are quarterly
fuck me, the people quibbling over this are most likely English majors which means you are either going to law school or are going to be unemployed. Go find a real major... science for instance and not a social one.
What kind of institution feels okay giving these people Masters? It's horrifying.
It's not that we don't have anything better to do, just that we don't do those things. It probably is a problem but if it contributes to maintaining our sanity I say we keep doing it.
7:20 i can to use those words in a sentance but thats stupid you asshole. thats what the man wants you to do.
It's supposedly, not supposably idiots.
Yes and physicality isn't a word either
sounds like it would have been an easy A... atleast you're GPA would have benefitted..
So far I haven't seen one person realize that this has to be either a fake post or a really late post due to the fact that it's December and the drop date for classes is long gone.
Have you ever thought that perhaps it's a problem that you all have nothing better to do than insult one another on a website that is merely supposed to be funny? Just a thought :) Happy holidays!
9:45- what dictionary? Because I really want to go out and buy the one you're reading that contains the mythical words...
family guy rip off.
7:35, that made me smile : )
I think we people stop using grammatical English, the rest is sure to follow.
7:32 I'm glad you got them all! I was just trolling and baiting those who are obsessed with grammar. It's the easiest type of trolling there is. I'm actually a little surprised it took until the third person in to figure out all the glaring errors.
Supposedly and supposably are both words meaning different things. Get your Masters in English and then we will debate - in the meantime good call on dropping the course - it is highly unlikely your teacher usedit correctly
wow, fail. To all of you, big, ginormous fail.
10:44-- it's "is horrible", not "are horrible".
Probably taught the guy who labeled his Christmas decoration "reefs".
Hey it's in my area code. What school? I don't want to take that class…
this is ridiculous. words are often created and legitimized through frequent use. thus, 'supposably' and 'irregardless' can maybe be considered 'words' in the same way that 'truthiness' and 'strategery' are 'words'
also, just wanted to add, the spell-check in my web browser says 'supposably' is NOT a word while 'irregardless' is.
oh, and to the OP, well done. the bastardization of the english language is definitely grounds for dropping a class
6:17, The--what? Seriously, what the fuck are you trying to say?
Supposably and Irregardless are both American English. Yeah! U-S-A! U-S-A! NUMBER ONE!
irregardless is just the hypercorrection of regardless, and is also the informal pronunciation. also, supposable is a word, but not supposably, prob. meant supposedly like 6:01 said
U guys r stupid ur goin to debate the way a word shuld prolly be spelled get a life
Wow, The grammer police are really getting off on this. Fucking loosers.
Another future welfare leach.
6:17 works at mcdonalds. no doubt.
12:05: i know I said physicality isn't a word to piss people off it just doesn't sound like one to me
And it's people like that teaching the future leaders.
I would have dropped it too. AWFUL!
658...'slam' and 'punch' can be both; onomatopoeia is simply a word that sounds it's meaning. But I'll bet you know that, don't you?
Dude. You guys are missing the point. Yeah, they're words, but usually teachers would frown upon saying them. Thus, the teacher in the OP's class is a total nimrod.
William Strunk says 'irregardless' should never be used in writing. If the Elements of Style says to refrain from using it, then the world should refrain from using it.
omg u r my hero for dropping that class!
last semester my geography professor spent the 1st 20 min of class trying to convince us Iceland is not a country. She wasn't joking. It was a really long semester. Wish I had dropped
Supposably is a word, the dictionary says so.
To 9:05. Those aren't words dumbass. That's the whole joke. Sounds like you were a participant in this class as well.
omg if he had only said "acrost"
I went to school in america for about a month. In English class they actually had to tell everyone that "anyways" with an s is not a real word.
NO FUCKING SHIT.
1:28 I was on quarters, the new quarter (though technically a trimester) doesn't start after thanksgiving, it starts the beginning of January.
I peer edited a paper last week. The girl used "husban" throughout the whole paper. Apparently she had no idea husband has a "D" on the end. She also didn't know the difference between "woman" and "women".
Irregardless is a word. It's just a frowned upon word. Google says so.
That happened to me too! Fuck that bitch
wow. this entire feed is about grammar or spelling. seriously? what the fuck?
Hahaha. That's always a bad sign. I bet there are a ton of people thinking "why is that bad?"
My very humble prediction is that in 50 years time, supposedly will have died, supposably will have lost whatever meaning the dictionary thinks it has now and will have replaced supposedly, and irregardless will have died out as a bad bad joke.
Irregardless is a word.
i would of stayed in the class, your a dumbass for dropping. you think your to good for collage? Stupid dumb asshole.
yayyyy grammar police ftw
I support your decision as well. Anyone who doesn't, well, it's clear that they also have no understanding of the English language.
Please take a moment and review what you just wrote.
This isnt even remotely humorous. Sorry but .... Fail!
Oh, wait, you missed TOO. Close enough.
alli is a fuckin slut who loves it when i cum in her mouth and swap that shit with my lucky broom which is from a horse
U shoud nt quit that's bad that's not we'll for poor people they can't aford that And u should just deal with itttt
I don't know what college you go to, but supposably IS a word. And so is irregardless.
